COCAINE and cannabis were seized by cops after they stormed a pub suspected of being a hub for drug dealing, writes Lorraine King.
Drinkers at The Falcon Pub in Kilburn Lane, Queen's Park, were searched after Brent Police teamed up with the Territorial Support Group to carry out the raid at 10.50pm on Friday.
The pub is located on the busy roundabout island that merges Queen's Park with Kilburn, and Brent with Westminster.
Fed-up residents expressed their concerns about suspected drug dealing to officers from Queen's Park Safer Neighbourhoods Team which led to the raid.
